This Thanksgiving with so many friends and family, I thought it was the perfect time to pull out my latest purchase called Skewered and Roasted for everyone to play. I bought it off of Amazon for $24.99 with $1.60 for shipping and handling - pretty reasonable I think for the 600 cards. It's a pretty hefty box.
The premise is simple enough with one person drawing a black card, called the roastee, who then reads it aloud with some sort of incomplete personal statement and then all players play the white card form their hand of six that best finishes the statement for the roastee. It can get wildly inappropriate with the goal of finding the white card that would be most insulting and most true to the roastee. A vote is taken to determine the winner. It was kind of the anti-Thanksgiving finisher, but after all of that thankfulness, it was truly entertaining to take each other down a notch. It was all in good fun.
We tried a couple of other variants with the roastee choosing the white card or having people paired up by the closeness of their relationship such that the wife had to pick the white card for her husband offering us her thought process. We all laughed so hard. We ended up playing for 2 hours. It definitely added to our Thanksgiving. Highly recommended!
